Go West, Young Bunny.

Ty the Guy OUT.

It goes without saying how much Adam West impacted my life.  I was EXACTLY the right age to become a lifelong fan when Batman come into our living room in 1966.  I remember the Adam West style Batman and Robin costumes my mother sewed for my brother and me when the show was still on the air.  I remember how excited I was to grow out of the Robin costume and finally fit into the Batman suit so I could be the Caped Crusader for Halloween in 1970.  It’s no coincidence that the lion’s share of my work for DC Comics takes place in Gotham City, from the animated Batman series, to the recent Batman 66 series, starring Adam West himself, it’s always my happiest place to be with Batman.

Thanks for the recent animated movies, and “Back to the Batcave” and Family Guy.  Thanks for the years of unbridled joy.

Thanks.

I sketch Adam West style Batman covers at conventions ALL the time.  It’s likely the most common request I get.  Here’s a few of them from the last year or so… I’m sure there will be many more–

This is, maybe, my favourite portrait I ever did of Adam West’s Batman.  It’s hard to see in this image, but this drawing is on the back of a playing card, a fan brought to the table, and is only about three inches tall.

Scum and Villainy Bun Toons! BOO!

navy blue toon

Bwah-hah-hah, I said, while rubbing my hands together.

It’s been a fun week for American politics.  Whether or not you support Trump, it’s hard not to notice that he’s cavorted into a buzz saw in the last few days.  Russian collusion, obstruction of justice, lying to the press, eating steak with ketchup…it’s all too heinous to believe Trump is a regular old villain….

This is YOUR chance to turn the whole meshuga into a metaphor I can wrap my teeth around.  Please vote for…

We’ll be tabulating votes until he’s impeached…I have money on his not lasting until Christmas.

My first thought was the Ventriloquist…

But the President’s eloquent statement:  “Puppet? No puppet!  You’re the puppet!” rendered this idea moot.

This is not my first time turning Trump into a comic book villain.  Below is a convention sketch I did (at the fan’s suggestion) right after Trump won the election late last year.

And I’m hardly the first one to notice the Trump/Luthor connection…

But again, one of them is actually smart, and both are actually fictional.

Even More Holiday Bun Toons! YAY!

I’m not relenting.  It’s gleeful holiday joy from here on out.

The rabbit is sketching furiously at a one-day Comicon in Toronto today, come down and see a real live, fuzzy-eared cartoonist at the Convention Centre on Front Street in the Big Smoke– if you DARE!   Until then…

If I have one message to share during this season of peace, it’s that we should all take the time and really ball-kick someone who deserves it.

Merry-o, everybody.

Remember when this was supposed to be funny?

PTSD Bun Toons. Meh.

Life is going to get better, cause it can hardly get worse.

Sigh.  Sigh.

In other considerations, I went to see Doctor Strange this week.  It was really entertaining, with some excellent set pieces and a delightful cast. It has the same spirit as ANT-MAN or GUARDIANS of the GALAXY–a surprisingly fun turn for one of Marvel’s lesser stars.

A Last Desperate Plea Bun Toon! AAHH!

AAAAHHHH!!!

I’d like to devote the Bun Toon to the madcap acid-world of Dr. Strange and the man who plays him, Barnabas Cumberland, but the fate of human civilization hangs in the balance, so I have no choice.

Alas.

Just in case there’s ONE persuadable voter reading this Bunny Blog…

You know, I didn’t much love Bush, Romney, or McCain, and greatly disliked Nixon and Bush Jr., but none of them convinced me we were seeing the end of American history if they got elected.  It was a matter of degrees with them.

Trump is an extinction event for American democracy.  That’s not hyperbole, that’s a stone fact.

Good luck.

Remember when making fun of his campaign was FUN?

On the Other Hand Bun Toons! YAY!

Wait, I’m a rabbit…it’s on the other PAW.

I’ve been out of town, running from convention to convention, and spent some time in them United States of America.  While I was there I caught a bit of US Cable TV.  What a treat.

If it weren’t for the fate of the free world, life and death and all that, the American News is funny as hell.  Well, it’s not funny if you’re relying on it for news.

Today is BATMAN Day, according to all the best calendars.

Holy Bloated Feeling of Fullness, Batman!

It’s just a little thing, but on this Batman Day, I can hint at the idea that I’m officially visiting Gotham City for a quick little project coming up soon.  More details when I’m allowed to share ’em, but it’s nice to be back in a corner of the comics universe I consider home.  See you in Crime Alley!

Unconventional Bun Toons! YAY!

00 gray window bunny

I didn’t go to any conventions this week, unlike the rest of the population.

 

While everyone is in San Diego comiconning, I’ve been hanging out at home, going to see Star Trek Beyond (quite good!  yay!) and going through some of my beat-up old Fifties comics…where I came across a cover that seemed far more relevant today than it was when it was first produced in 1958.

tales full of crap websize REV

 

Of course, it can’t be Donald Trump, he would have been only twelve when this cover was produced, but the portrait bears a striking resemblance to the future Republican nominee.  Perhaps this is a case of life imitating art, and young Donald saw this cover, inspiring him towards a life of public service.

Ty the Guy OUT!

The Jack Davis cover looks more like Trump that THIS one does…
